It’s finally Friday, and just like every other Friday, we know you’re damn well ready to get the weekend started off right with what else, a brand-spanking new episode of the internet’s most mediocre podcast of them all! Join your hosts Matt and Robert this week as the discuss all sorts of good stuff. From the true struggles of middle class 80’s kids and video game trolls to spirited and uninformed debate on the comic book continuity, it’s an episode for the ages! So, do some jumping jacks, widen your doorways, and let it all hang out because it’s a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
We all know Hollywood is pretty much out of ideas. Nowadays, it seems like 90% of the movies hitting theaters is either some sort of remake or reboot, likely of something that has already been remade a couple times before. The awesome and epic story-tellers and directors (Looking at you, Nolan and Whedon) seem to finally be getting their chance to really shine, but studios are just too afraid to take a chance on those unique indie projects waiting in the wings, so it looks like we’re stuck with the likes of Michael Bay, Joel Schumacher, and Brett Ratner. Join us this week as we discuss the movies that we actually want to see remade (because it’s going to happen eventually), but only if someone with talent can do it! Wipe your classic memories away, burn up those original scripts, and whatever you do, don’t even think of Transformers as we discuss our remake picks on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
So, 2011 is finally winding down and coming to an end. Another year come and gone with most of us having nothing to show for it but wracked up Christmas debt and extra pounds courtesy of the holiday season. While this reality gets most people down as the new year turns the corner, we here at Monkey in the Cage couldn’t be more excited! This year has proven to be a great one for all of the Monkeys, especially since it brought us all closer together and saw the start of our podcast! Woohoo (or boo, if you’re Robert)!
This week, in our end of the year episode, we look back on all the great things we were able to geek out on this past year (or, from September on…). From movies and games to babies and houses, join us as we close out 2011 with some great memories and get ready for a geek-filled 2012. From all of us Monkeys to all of you Internet-ians, have a drunkenly safe and happy New Year and in 2012 always “Nerd out with your Wookie out!”
